    1 thought on “Widow Barnaby”

    1. Irrepressible grasping social climber with weakness for handsome ne'er-do-wells gets her comeuppance. Sweet chaste patient penniless young relative gets her reward. A highly entertaining read. The widow is hilarious in her persistent refusal to believe that she can possibly run out of money; even getting thrown into Newgate for nonpayment of debt doesn't faze this woman. She's a bit like a stupider and less attractive version of Scarlett O'Hara in her avarice and ambition; you can almost hear he [...]

    2. Who knew Anthony Trollope's mother was a writer? I certainly didn't, but I'm glad I discoverd this (dare I say) delightful novel in three volumes. It is part Pride and Prejudice, part Sense and Sensibility, part Emma, and a dash of Cinderella. I'm puzzled by the title since the widow Barnaby's story really served as the counterpoint for the story of the young orphan, the widow's niece Agnes. While Fanny Trollope frequently uses dozens of words where only one or two would suffice and long paragra [...]

    3. I believe if I had reviewed this book back in Ms. Trollope's day, I would have called it "frothy." Not much substance, but a good Victorian romance novel. Not the brilliant social commentary of Jane Austen. Not the deeply developed characters of Charlotte Bronte. A little silly at times. But a very likeable book to escape to.[This was a time when pretty much all I wanted to do was escape. Also, remember the yellow, green and pink in a box idea. One word per spine. xox]

    4. Je ne connaissais pas Frances Trollope (la mère d'Anthony) et j'ai choisi son roman un peu par hasard (le critère étant que j'avais besoin d'un roman de plage qui ait beaucoup de pages). Et ce fut une véritable découverte ! L'héroïne, Martha, et toute la situation m'a rappelé le superbe Lady Susan de Jane Austen en plus caustique. Les personnages sont absolument savoureux, à la fois par leur bêtise (Agnès est un peu trop gentille) , leurs préjugés ( la tante Betsy est un modèle du [...]

    5. First time reading a book of Mrs Frances Trollope--mother of the much more famous Anthony Trollope (whom I love).It was pleasant enough, but I kept on thinking to myself that I wish her son Anthony would have taken this story and rewritten it! I bet he would have done a better job with character development & dialog.

    6. Really more about the vulgar, selfish Mrs Barnaby's niece, the good, timid, beautiful Agnes, than the widow Barnaby herself. It's Victorian, but not really literary; it's a comforting, light-hearted romantic kind of read in the Cinderella mould. Reminded me a bit of Louisa M. Alcott and L. M. Montgomery.
